Mustang II Control Arms

Looking at Mustang II style front suspension but I'm not a fan of how far the front wheels are tucked in. Does anyone make control arms that are wider or is that even possible? Thanks

Re: Mustang II Control Arms

JAKA, here's a link to ECI Brakes, http://ecihotrodbrakes.com/mustang_p...nversions.html they have kits for Mustang II spindles that, do not move from stock position, or move out 3/4" per side. I purchased the ones that move out 3/4" and like the position.

Here's a pic of how mine look

Re: Mustang II Control Arms

The truck I'm building is a 68 C10. Building it for drag racing and the occasional drive to work. Wanting to lose the heavy/bulky stock stuff for something to get it lower with better ground clearance and less weight.

Re: Mustang II Control Arms

Well, the MII stuff is the lightest common stuff around. But, base MII IFS track width is 56.5". You will want 62" to 64" for a C10. FatMan Fab or Scotts may be able to help, as they use these spindles on Truck suspensions But, do you trust Pinto spindles to land on or run 150 mph.
A MII IFS with coil-overs and a P/S rack and 11" brakes will weigh in around 180 lbs (from my notes, you may get a different answer from some manufacturers if they know it). Our No Limit WideRide IFS is a bolt in, has a 63" track width, 12" brakes, coil-over and P/S configuration comes in at 194 lbs. WideRide IFS uses a custom forged spindle (very close to GM 'B' body Impala).

Swapping to a manual rack saves about 28 lbs total (rack, pump, pulley, hoses...) Swapping to a Wilwood 12.19 4 piston brake will cut 14 lbs from the WR-IFS. (about 8 from a MII) FYI, a stock C10 IFS complete assy with disc and P/S box weighs in around 330 lbs. Note: Wilwood brakes change the track width. On a WR-IFS, add 1" to the track width for Wilwood brakes, for a MII, add 3/4".

Re: Mustang II Control Arms

Rob, Could you send me a PM on what the cost of your front suspension would cost? No sway bar, Manual rack and no brakes. Thanks
